A Fab Howl-o-Ween

#stampinup   I'm going to get a lot of use out of the "Howl-o-Ween Treat" stamp set this month. After all, it is the month of Halloween! I thought it would be a great set to use for this week's Fab Friday sketch challenge.

I love the Tangelo Twist and Basic Black color combination of the Happy Haunting Designer Series Paper. I thought this would make a good focal point for one of the panels from the sketch. I cut a piece of Happy Haunting DSP and backed it with a Basic Black mat. Then I cut a smaller Very Vanilla panel and stamped the "trick or treat" sentiment from the "Howl-o-Ween" stamp set in Basic Black Archival Ink. I stamped the wee little spider in Basic Black as well and then used one of the Project Life Journaling Pens to draw a spider thread for him to hang on. 

I adhered these two elements together and then added a length of Basic Black Stitched Satin Ribbon. I think the ribbon really makes the design pop. I adhered all of this to a Tangelo Twist card base. Don't mind the crinkle at the top of the card. My filing "system" is to pile my cards on the floor as I finish them and someone stepped on this card. I think that just adds to the Halloween patina.
